Battlefield 2042 won't release into early access until November 12, but there is a little appetizer that is currently available for fans. DICE has quietly made the Battlefield Portal web application available to everyone.

This will allow you to have some hands-on time with the application ahead of the game's release. This app allows you to create and share your personalized Battlefield experiences, as we previously discussed.

You can begin creating your own experiences and seeing what the limitations are, if there are any, with Portal.

There is a catch. DICE community manager PartWelsh stated on Reddit that the only reason the Portal web app is available right now is because it's part of the final testing for the media preview that is going on today. It will be turned off "later on." He also says that anything you manage to create in this early look at Portal will not carry over to the final release of the game. If you want to recreate something that you make now, be sure to take screenshots of the settings you have adjusted.

Also, I'm going to guess that the full public release of the Battlefield Portal probably won't have "review" as part of the URL when it's actually released.

If you read this and the Portal preview has been taken down, there's still something to be excited about: The pre-load for the PC release of Battlefield 2042 is now available. You can download now in preparation for the long decrypting process that will take place for those that purchased the expensive versions of the game at 3AM (ET) on the morning of Friday, November 12. Steam tells me that the download size is about 44.4GB.
